I’ve beaten both the “Hired Muscle” and “Trouble in Skyrim” quests, and every time I ask someone in the circle about a job, they just say “aren’t you already running a job for Farkas?”

I’m not. I want to marry Farkas, but I can’t get any further with the companion story line. How do I progress Farkas' companion story line?

    Just to confirm, you have spoken to Skjor?

    The part your asking us about explicitly requires talking to Skjor. So either your further ahead than your telling us you are, or you've killed a major NPC and can not physically move any further in the storyline

    Are you at least able to confirm what the last quest you completed in the questline was? As it is, this is way to vague

You need to complete the Entire Companion questline to get him as a Marriage option, these include:

  • Take Up Arms
  • Proving Honor
  • The Silver Hand
  • Blood's Honor
  • Purity of Revenge
  • Glory of the Dead

If the quest is bugged it can have a plethora of reasons(mainly due to the repeatable quests).

Options are:

  • Sleep for a day or 2, it might fix itself
  • save, attack the companions and then either sheave your weapon or reload and it might reset.
  • Some quests are wrongfully categorizes, some other miscellaneous quests might block it and need to be completed first
  • Try everybody there might be a single one that does give a job but think u already tried that.
  • Bounties might cause the issue, try paying them al off or getting one and then paying it off

IF that doesn't work your last option is using console commands.

  • that’s the thing, it’s not letting me start any new tasls
